Home » MIM Process

Metal Injection Molding (MIM) combines the technologies of thermoplastic injection molding and powder metallurgy to produce complex-shaped, high density, high performance metal parts. Best applied to small parts (typically less than 100 grams), the MIM process offers lower cost solutions for numerous applications compared to machining or investment casting, and improved mechanical properties compared to plastic injection molding or zinc die casting.

Since the commercial beginnings of the Metal Injection Molding Process in the mid-1970’s, the technology has matured and gained acceptance in numerous industries, including Automotive Systems, Medical and Dental Instruments, Orthodontics, Firearms, Hardware and Lock Components, and Computer and Electrical applications.
